May Update at Sequential Tart

The Tart interviews webtoonists Brad Guigar of Greystone Inn (with a pun in the title similar to the April Comixpedia interview with Mr. Guigar.); Amy Kim Ganter, creator of Reman Mythology; Miktar Dracon of Unnatural But True; and Monique MacNaughton (who has worked on GAAK and UNA Frontiers).

Jiffy Burke offers Little Quirks and Oddities: 10 Tips for Webcomics and the Tart reviews several webcomics including: A Softer World, Broken Saints, Gun Street Girl: Waking the Witch, Mnemesis, No Rest for the Wicked, Queen of Wands and Something Positive.

Last but not least Trisha Sebastian talks to actor/writer Wil Wheaton. Cool!

Guigar Working Methods

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

I use the 400 series Bristol board, usually vellum (although I've been going back and forth between vellum and plate). Usually the Strathmore Bristol. I do my pencils in [holding up pencil] mechanical pencil with blue leads, which you can actually find blue leads for which is great because I have no patience for sharpening. [Laughs] They're always sharp; they're perfect. I usually get three strips to a 14 x 17-inch page; I do 14 inches wide by 3 inches deep. I do the inks in Pigma Micron pens [holding up pens] like these, which I love. I do not do any hand lettering; I do the lettering using the computer. I scan [the strips] in, put the lettering in, and do all my processing in Photoshop and Quark Xpress.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.
